From 12:00, when racing begins, sailors can expect south-southwesterly winds between 10-14 knots, gusting 18 knots.
After 18:00, the wind will decrease slightly to around 10 knots, with heavy rain and thunderstorms likely.
Similarly to yesterday, wave height shouldn't reach over 1m today.
Racing will start at around 12:00 for the majority of Olympic events, with between two and three races scheduled in each.
Today is the last day of fleet racing for the RS:X Men and Women, 49ers, 49erFXs and Nacra 17s - they will all have their Medal Race tomorrow.
